Not cool. As bad as he was, why stoop to their level? He's a human, and another human should never revel in the death of one another.

Even though he was a despicable person, how does that make them any better by profiting off of his death?

he spread a lot of hate but to revel in his death is a bit twisted

Agree with the comments so far. The world is better off without Phelps and I'm a fan of Touche Amore, but this just doesn't seem necessary

Unless these profits go to some type of charity or something, this is kind of weird.

First of all, definitely thought someone from the band died at first.

Secondly, I couldn't care less about Fred Phelps' death; the rest of the church remains, and making these shirts will accomplish nothing but showing the wrong way to deal with something like this. In the words of Kevin Smith, "I feel the same way about this as I did when the man was alive: I feel bad for his family."

pretty sure this is a reprint of a shirt they did when they first started off (granted they added his death date)

I mean they have a song called "WeHateFredPhelps.com"

they are releasing this shirt because of the song they wrote for their debut 7" years ago

I don't think this changes anything, though. It's still in poor taste.

Ceremony did the same shit with Jerry Falwell. I wouldn't wear one, but it doesn't offend me.
